BAD(L) Längenfeld

sightseeing/guided tour , museum/gallery , open-air museum

Exactly where a sulphurous spring was bubbling in the 16th century, today the area around the Nature Park House, which is planted in a variety of ways and with a small waterfall, forms a special place of power. In the walk-in "borehole" and in the equally accessible "sulfur rock" the whole family can trace the history from the Bauernbadl over the former spa to the construction of the thermal bath Aqua Dome.
Seating areas invite you to relax and linger.

In addition to the historical experience, there is the possibility to take sulfur water for drinking and takeaway.

Teufelskanzel

excursion , viewpoints/viewing platforms , excursion tips

Heavenly devilish
The pleasant Duringweg walking route travels along the shore of the Ötztaler Ache river. Literally, there is no devilish sulfur in the air but pleasant scents reminding of freshly cut trees, moss and wild berries. The hike‘s ascent travels along Panoramaweg trail to the Teufelskanzel area marked with a Tirolean flag.
Here you should watch out for the blazing red devil with a trident made of steel, poking out his long tongue.
Legend has it that the local farmer and hunter Bartl sold his soul and made a deal with the devil. In return the devil promised wealth and prosperity. You are warmly invited to read the end of the whole story written on the huge information board on the spot.
One thing is for sure, the farmer Bartl enjoyed an equally fantastic view of Längenfeld‘s basin, the Suspension Bridge, Brand and Burgstein.
Starting point: Camping Längenfeld, footbridge over Ötztaler Ache river
Walking time, both ways: 2.5 - 3 hours

Lehner Wasserfall

excursion , waterfall , excursion tips

Powerful Waters Close-By
Roaring Alpine water cascades down 80 meters right into the deep gorge – formed a couple of million years ago. Pure energy and elemental force cast a spell over hikers and climbers.
The well-maintained hiking trail takes nature aficionados halfway up to the falls, offering double the fun: this is an experience in close touch with nature and water spray as well as a fantastic vantage point overlooking the waterfall‘s climbing area on the opposite part. Benches invite the tired hiker to take a rest or simply watch the cool sportsmen. A wooden platform at the upper end of the route provides great photo scenes. The hiking tour through the shady larch forest is easy and safe as it features a wooden handrail on the steeper sections.
A higher instance guards the trail. At the entrance to the Stations of the Cross walkers stop at Zarrach Chapel and then continue along the 14 wayside shrines to St. Mary‘s Grotto located on top.
Starting point: local heritage museum, hamlet of Lehn
Walking time, both ways: 50 minutes
Difficulty level: intermediate
Difference in altitude: 150 m

Adlerblick

Mountains from a bird's eye perspective
Not even a mighty eagle could make it to Lourdes on a single day! Even though hikers feel close to this unique pilgrimage site thanks to the small Lourdes Grotto and its statue of the Virgin Mary. You reach the chapel after conquering one third of the whole ascent. Without any effort walkers continue on the smooth forest trail leading to a giant golden eagle made of carved wood. The beautiful bird spreads out the wings covering almost 1.80 meters. You can climb the tree on a small staircase and watch the huge wings close-by. A kids‘ slide takes you down to earth again.
The king of birds – enjoy yourself an Eagle‘s View from almost 1,400 m altitude. Soar with the eagles towards the mighty Alpine peaks which only seem a stone‘s throw away.
You simply need a small telescope provided on the vantage platform to make out the nearby mountains: Fünffingerspitze, Hahlkogel, Fundusfeiler or Gamskogel.
Starting Point: chapel next to primary school Längenfeld-Espan
